Detailing the Nissan Juke Nismo

Detailing the Nissan Juke Nismo

Next month sees the UK launch of the new Nissan Juke Nismo, with the vehicle set to deliver on both the style and performance fronts.

There has been plenty of interest shown in the Japanese manufacturer's sports crossover ever since it was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show back in September.

One of the standout features of the Juke Nismo is the outstanding power that the vehicle's 1.6-litre direct injection turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine delivers.

Rev up this motor and it will be capable of returning 200PS at 6,000rpm, as well as up to 250Nm of torque between 2,400rpm and 4,800rpm.

What this translates to on the open road is a front-wheel drive, six-speed manual vehicle that can breach 62mph from a standstill in just 7.8 seconds and the ability to stretch to a blink-and-you'll-miss-it top speed of 134mph.

However, drivers will want to bring their Nissan Juke Nismo to a halt at times and admire the car's striking good looks.

Look around the exterior of the sports crossover and motorists will be able to marvel at specific 18-inch alloy wheels and sporty 225/45 R18 tyres.

A sleek Nismo aero package which comes complete with front and rear bumpers and side skirts also catch the eye, as does a bold roof spoiler and signature red door mirrors and lower pinstripe.

One choice the motorists have to decide on is whether to finish the Nismo's exterior in a Storm White, Pearl Black and Blade Silver paintjob – all of which are astounding hues.

There is plenty more to admire when stepping into the Nissan Juke Nismo, beginning with flash sports seats which are styled in suede and finished with red stitching.

An alcantara and leather steering wheel is another luxurious touch, as is the suede door lining trim, the car interior's bold black centre console design and its Nismo-branded driving mats.

Order books for the new Nissan Juke Nismo open in the UK next month, before being released in March.
